Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility
My clinical career started in West Philadelphia at the University of Pennsylvania, where the nursing school emphasized serving the local underserved community and included local nurse practitioner run family practices. I became more politically educated during this time by that community, who taught me about the concept of the reparations owed to these communities. This inspired me to spend my life trying to repair some of the damage that has been done. I have continued to work in and with underserved communities around Boston since moving here in 2000. In 2018 I was overjoyed to start practicing at Boston Medical Center, the premier safety net hospital in Boston, where there is a real commitment among my peers to providing excellent care regardless of ability to pay, language barriers, and other challenges faced by those who may be perceived as "different." I have a particular interest in serving the LGBTQIA and the immigrant communities, as well as those who struggle with substance use disorders. I have been active in the General Internal Medicine Antiracism Working Group and also in anti-policing efforts at BMC and in my local community. I am interested in research that we are doing here on systemic racism, in particular on ways of implementing real and lasting change.
